Článek se zabývá aplikací Fuzzy Clustering ve vzdělávání a také identifikace nadaných žáků ze strany individualizace systému Mastery Learning. V Mastery Learning jsou studenti rozděleni podle typu a úrovně nadání za účelem zvýšit motivaci studenta a efektivitu učení. Pro rozdělení studentů do skupin bylo využito několik hodnotících testů. Fuzzy klastrování přináší možnost, jak hodnotit dílčí výsledky (kritéria) s různými podmínkami a relevancí. Článek popisuje aplikaci fuzzy klastrování na případové studie, jejíž cílem bylo najít co nejefektivnější skupina - skupina nadaných studentů.
